Buy Data Verizon ((NEW))

You do have to pick a data plan that is something you do have to do but you can always select the lowest one available. The only other option with Verizon is like what is said above which is get you own phone for Verizon and use the prepaid service.

AT&T GoPhone plan does not require a data plan, you can activate a smart phone on a basic gophone plan. However, if you don't turn data off at the carrier level, you will get a per use charge for data.

It is just a policy they put in place in order to safeguard themselves from customers who either inadvertantly or purposely rack up huge data bills at the rate of $1.99/MB which is the rate Verizon charges phones without data plans.

Yes, you CAN use a smartphone without a data plan, but some people would either blatantly or inadvertantly abuse the system as they did in the past by incurring these large data bills and pleading ignorance after the fact.

I assume it is because of the bad press which would ensue(as it did in the past before data plans were mandatory) when people drop their data plan because they can save $30/month and then rack up a $1000 data bill the following month and blame Verizon for their choices. I can certainly understand the reasoning behind the decision.

If you check, all the carriers require a data plan when using a smartphone. It costs carriers money when customers use data. True, when using wifi, you are not using data; however, what happens when you can't use wifi?

In my opinion, FWIW, providers require a data plan with smartphones primarily because they are in the business of selling their network capacity. They probably make little or nothing on the sale of phones and probably don't make much from basic phone customers. I would think most of their revenue and profit comes from smartphone customers who use the data network. There is little or no incentive for a provider to allow customers to use smartphones without a data plan. If they did this, how many current smartphone customers would drop their data plans? There is just no reason they would allow this.

Secondly, I'm sure the issue of smartphone customers running up huge data usage bills at $1.99 per MB is also a factor. It wasn't long ago when this forum was loaded with customer complaints about that issue.

They may not make much money on smartphones; however, they do make money on all the bloatware they stick you with. Also, as I said, moving data around does cost them money; wire maintenance, tower maintenance (not to mention installing new towers), payroll for the mainenance crews and the people running the equipment, etc., etc., etc. Even outfits, such as Consumer Cellular, charge you for a data plan when you purchase a smartphone. True, it is less expensive than, say, Verizon, but what can you do with 400MB of data? I'd eat up 400MB in just a few days.

I guess I'm not following you. My point is DATA is the product they are selling. They want customers who use data. They probably don't want customers who don't use data. There is no business reason that I can see that Verizon would allow smartphones on their network without a data plan.

Now lets give an example of the iPhone 5 the full retail price is around $649.99 and they subsidize it for 229.99 (after upgrade fee). There is a difference of $420.00. If Verizon allowed you to have the device on an account without the $30.00 data plan they would lose $180.00 per line per 2 year contact.

I'm trying to replace a old Motorola V3 with a new Samsung phone that uses both 3g/4g service or WiFi to access the data services that I would need. Talking to Samsung on the phones that I want there is no need to have 3g/4g service if you have Wifi (which I have all the time no matter where I go). So I see no need to pay for a service I will never need.

That does not change the fact Verizon did not always require a data plan with smartphones. They chose this policy decision when a large portion of people would "inadvertantly"(I read this as "abuse the system" expecting to be forgiven) use data at the $1.99/MB rate even though they claimed "they didn't need a data plan". As a result, these same people who claimed "they didn't need a data plan" racked up data charges in excess of $1000 resulting in Verizon having to forgive these debts or face the mountain of bad press as an alternative.

When you consider every other provider requires a data plan, it would be crazy for Verizon to not follow suit in order to placate the few people who claim they don't need a data plan. The chance for abuse and resulting negative press far outweigh the fraction of customers who could/would actually make it work.

Learn how those with select shared data mobile phone plans can enable Safety Mode so you can stay online at reduced speeds, without worrying about overage fees.Or consider switching to our Unlimited plans, which let you stay online without worrying about monthly data limits and overage charges.

Safety Mode lets you keep using data at reduced speeds after your shared data plan's allowance is used up for the month. You can stay online without worrying about overage fees.Note: Safety Mode isn't needed when you have an Unlimited plan.

If your plan has a data allowance, enabling Safety Mode for your account will prevent overage fees. When your data allowance is up for the month, you will still have access to reduced speed data. You will also have the option to buy a Data Boost or to change to a different plan, all through the My Verizon app.Consider switching to our Unlimited plans, which let you stay online without worrying about monthly data limits and overage charges.

According to Santa Clara County Fire Chief Anthony Bowden, the data service provider failed to live up to their policy of lifting data caps in emergency situations when Bowden department asked for help while they battled the Mendocino Complex Fire. As of late August 2018, the fire had consumed more than 400,000 acres of land, making it the largest wildfire in California history.

Verizon representatives confirmed the throttling, but rather than restoring us to an essential data transfer speed, they indicated that County Fire would have to switch to a new data plan at more than twice the cost, and they would only remove throttling after we contacted the Department that handles billing and switched to the new data plan.

Bowden said the data throttling primarily affected one specific vehicle, OES 5262, which his department employed to "track, organize, and prioritize routing of resources from around the state and country to the sites where they are most needed" during the blaze. The department's plan called for their data speeds to be slowed if they used more than 25 gigabytes a month.

"In the midst of our response to the Mendocino Complex Fire, County Fire discovered the data connection for OES 5262 was being throttled by Verizon, and data rates had been reduced to 1/200, or less, than the previous speeds," he wrote.

Regardless of the plan emergency responders choose, we have a practice to remove data speed restrictions when contacted in emergency situations. We have done that many times, including for emergency personnel responding to these tragic fires. In this situation, we should have lifted the speed restriction when our customer reached out to us. This was a customer support mistake. We are reviewing the situation and will fix any issues going forward.

Wrapping 2016 up with another blockbuster deal for the data center industry, Equinix has agreed to acquire a portion of the data center portfolio Verizon Communications has been attempting to sell since at least last year.

Reports that a big Verizon data center portfolio was on the market started emerging last year, and Verizon confirmed it was considering a sale earlier this year. In recent months Equinix emerged as the most likely buyer, as we reported in October.

Verizon is the second major telco to offload data centers this year. Last month, CenturyLink announced a deal to sell its entire 57-data center colocation business to a joint venture between private equity companies BC Partners and Medina Capital.

The two most important sites that will be changing hands if and when the deal closes are the massive NAP of the Americas facility in Miami and the four-building NAP of the Capital Region campus in Culpeper, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. The Miami data center is a key nerve center for network traffic between the US and Latin America, while Culpeper reportedly houses a lot of IT infrastructure for the US government.

The former Terremark facility functions in a similar way Equinix has designed most of its data centers to function. It is an interconnection hub for carriers and other types of service providers, who link their networks there to expand their reach and optimize traffic routes for their customers. The 90 or so global networks that interconnect at the site provide access to more than 150 countries, Strohmeyer said.

European antitrust regulators forced Equinix to sell eight data centers in Europe in exchange for approval of its blockbuster $3.8 billion acquisition of TelecityGroup, which closed earlier this year. It sold those facilities to San Francisco-based Digital Realty Trust, which recently emerged as one of its biggest competitors.

According to Tan, an expert on Asia-Pacific data center markets, Equinix already has a strong position in core Asia-Pacific markets, such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Sydney, and does not appear to want to move into emerging markets in the region.
